Dario Argento's 1977 original is considered to be a classic in the horror genre, a film that many believe cannot be topped. Guadagnino is boldly attempting to do it, with Dakota Johnson taking over the lead role of Susie Bannion from Jessica Harper. The cast of the remake will also include Chloe Grace Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Sylvie Testud, Angela Winkler, Malgosia Bela, and Lutz Ebersdorf.
With an original score composed by Thom Yorke, the film deals with a famous dance company, and the artistic director (Swinton) and dancing newcomer (Johnson) who get embroiled in... well, a terrifying horror experience.
Take a look at the new trailer right here:
Well... that certainly looks like a movie not to take the kids to.
Reminiscent of the highly stylized and unnerving 1977 original from director Dario Argento (with music also evocative of the original score from Argento’s band The Goblins), the teaser treats (if that’s the right word) the viewer to some truly terrifying and surreal imagery—maggots crawling on a woman’s face, a young woman climbing up a doorway like a spider, Tilda Swinton’s vacant yet still somehow judging stare—with little context. It all looks suitably insane.
Will it ring true and bring new life to a classic story? We'll know for sure when it hits theaters on Nov. 2. Get some sleep while you can.
